DENVER, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ReadyTalk, a provider of audio and web conferencing and webinar technology, today announced the availability of the ReadyTalk application for ExactTarget HubExchange, which enables marketers who run lead generation webinars to use ExactTarget for event emails, registration, and follow-up while conducting their live web events with ReadyTalk.
ReadyTalk for ExactTarget HubExchange saves time and improves lead conversion rates for webinar programs. The application meets the needs of customers who use webinars as a key component in marketing campaigns and lead generation efforts while leveraging ExactTarget for better customizability and deliverability of event-related emails.
"By integrating with ExactTarget, marketers can improve webinar ROI by eliminating tedious, manual processes and automatically driving timely and relevant follow-up for higher lead conversion," said Beth Toeniskoetter, product strategist at ReadyTalk. "This integration offers the best of both worlds—ExactTarget for event-related emails and registration and ReadyTalk for sharing content and interacting with your audience."
The application enables marketers to leverage ExactTarget for webinar invitations, registration, confirmations, reminders, and timely follow-up while eliminating tedious manual processes. The ReadyTalk app for ExactTarget HubExchange allows marketers to:
- Use existing ExactTarget templates or out-of-the-box templates provided by ReadyTalk for all event-related emails and registration to get up and running quickly, while maintaining brand look-and-feel.
- Increase webinar attendance rates by making it easy for registrants to add the event to their calendar. ReadyTalk includes an ICS file that contains the registrant's unique 'Join Meeting' link in confirmation and reminder emails sent from ExactTarget.
- Easily link a recording into ExactTarget immediately after a live event, so that the recorded content can be used in follow-up emails to attendees and no-shows.
- View key metrics for events in the HubExchange application like email sends and open rates along with webinar registration and attendance.
